Belt had a big night at the plate going 3-for-5 with a home run and four RBI in the Giants win over Cincinnati on Friday night.

Belt got off to a dreadful start in April and was regularly getting days off, at least against left-handed pitchers, but he has really turned it on in May, raising his average to .291 on the year. The home run was his first of the season and he has just 11 RBI, but he looks to be locked in now.

Belt went 4-for-5 including a double and a run in the 6-0 win over the Marlins

This was the most hits Belt has had all season and it's a promising sign as the youngster has gotten off to a rough start. He went 5-for-9 against the Padres in the Giants last series and has started this series with an impressive 6-for-9. This 11-for-18 stretch is something to jump on as it's clear Belt is scorching hot.

Belt went 2-for-3 with a double, a triple, and a walk in Wednesday's loss to the Padres.

Don't look now, but Belt is starting to heat up at the plate. He went 5-for-9 in the series against the Padres, and is now slashing .261/.363/.377 on the season. There is definitely power in that bat, so those who need help at the corner should try to jump the gun on Belt.

Belt went 1-for-4 with a double, a run scored, and an RBI in Sunday's win over the Angels.

Belt has gotten off to a slow start this year (.217/.309/.267) and has been getting benched regularly against lefties. He isn't at risk of losing his starting job due to his .309 OBP and solid defense. Belt will get a chance to get things going when the Padres come into town with three right-handed starters scheduled.

Belt is out of the lineup Friday.

Buster Posey is getting the start at first base meaning Belt will start the game on the bench. He is slugging just .275 so owners have not gotten a good return on their draft day investment through one month.

Belt is out of the lineup Monday against the Dodgers, Eric Stephen of True Blue LA reports.

Belt will take a seat in favor of Buster Posey at first base and Norichika Aoki in left field. He received a start in left Sunday, and manager Bruce Bochy is looking into that as an option going forward to get he, Posey and Andrew Susac in the same lineup. He won't play Monday, likely due to the left-handed Brett Anderson on the mound, but that could be an option moving forward.

The Giants may look to get Belt more work in left field, Alex Pavlovic of the Bay Area News Group reports.

Belt made his first start in left field last Sunday, and it sounds as if manager Bruce Bochy hasn't ruled out making that move again. Bochy would like to see Buster Posey, Andrew Susac and Belt in the same lineup, and this strategy would provide him with the means to accomplish that objective. Regardless of where he plays, Belt's consistent presence in the lineup can only be a good thing for fantasy owners.
